    On that note, which CPA networks carry ****************.com? The only one I have found is flex0ffers.com and I hate the dlayed reporting they have, seems shady. Any networks you can suggest are greatly appreciated :)

    I just noticed, they do it via CJ, but CJ is usually not ok with BH traffic.

    azoogleads has that offer. however, i don't run it because IMO they are a bit too strict, and for some reason, I can't redirect to their offer the way I prefer. So their account sits around, collecting dust. :(

    Damn that doesn't sound too reassuring. What if we are a small fry only sending 3 leads per day or so?

    "Unethically" and "illegally" are completely different. Do they have in the TOS that there is an ethics code ? ( im not saying it like i know, its a genuine question :) lol )

    only 3 leads per day makes it less likely that you will get caught...but not because you are a small fry. just because its only 3 people. if they talk to one of your leads, and they squeal, you're toast.

    Toast as in:

    - Yanked from the offer and probably not paid for the leads.

    - BANNED from your CPA network

    Ive been told before to just stop sending traffic to a certain offer because they were not converting, just pulled off the offer and not banned from the whole CPA network. As a matter of fact ive been told that about multiple offers on the same network but they just tell me to stop the offer and dont seem to care beyond that.

    Do you guys have 1st hand experience with this? Thanks for your answers.

    Toast as in probably banned from the network. It depends how much the "leads" tell the advertiser, and how much they tell the network. If they say CL, you may just get off the offer, but if they say "they offered me a job but said i needed to blah blah blah" then your totally effed.

    I'll tell you what, it hasn't been easy finding credit offers period... I've contacted 4 companies in the past 24 hours and I still haven't heard back from any of them... these companies are just about as disorganized and disfunctional as they come...

    THEY MAKE IT NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE FOR AFFILIATES TO CONTACT THEM when all they have on their "contact us" page is an 800 number to some outsourced call center and an email that no one ever bothers to check...

    They need to get their shit together. This is getting old really fast.

    any news on ****************.com? Is anyone actually getting paid from them while generating a high volume of leads? I am thinking about promoting them but dont even want to waste my time if I wont be paid.

    Well I'm not sure what you define reliable as. How is it more reliable when you guys are getting banned and not payed for your hard work? The owner of the company whose thread I directed you to is a BHW member and accepts blackhat traffic and will actually pay you.

    Sound like ****************.com isn't as reliable as you think huh?
